OK, here's my take. I'm not happy by any means about the Presidency. However, I do have to still respect the office. If we don't, it will diminish in its power. BUT, we still have our rights as Americans which we should always hold dear to us. We have the right of free speech, of which we can speak out. We have the right to vote, of which we can vote anyone in office out. President Elect Obama had better do what he said he is going to do. For we as Americans will be watching, and waiting. My personal feelings are that he will fail just like Carter. His ideas are not good. His ideas are dangerous, and will lead to failure in many ways.
I am OK that he is a black man. In fact I think America should be proud that a black man can achieve this level of accomplishment. I hope others will learn from this, that he worked his butt of to get where he is. I think he worked his way up in a corrept Chicago government, but he did work hard. I believe the color of one's skin should make no difference. It all matters what is in the heart and mind.
OK, we have 2 years to get the Senate back and the House back. Remember this as we vote in 2 years for some of the seats. And then in 4 years, we will have the opportunity to vote for a new President as well as more new Senators and Representatives.
Please be smart when you vote. Please don't vote on your emotions. Listen to the words and see the actions. I read a comment tonight that says "Obama is like country music. It sounds good until you listen to the words".
Clay after we voted today...he had to have the sticker!
Good night everybody, and good luck.
